Distinction Hotels are helping to support the fundraising efforts of the wider Fox Glacier Community in their endeavour to build a community centre.
The 375 permanent residents of Fox Glacier have the decided advantage of living in one of the world’s most beautiful places; however Fox’s wonderful wild weather and geographic location can impact on resident’s personal health and happiness and on a well rounded lifestyle. The community centre hopes to alleviate some of this by providing the town's first all weather hub for sporting, social and cultural events to help promote health and well-being.
Having a community centre will not only benefit local residents but also the thousands of tourists who flock to the glacier region every year.
After 12 years of hard work planning, revising plans and fundraising, the Fox Glacier Community Centre is nearing its final stages. In the push to complete the project, it is all hands on deck for those living in the small community, including Distinction Fox Glacier Hotel Manager Christian Scheule, who lent a hand recently installing pink bats and delivering morning tea to the workers.
